Performance, Handling, Reliability, It's Got It All! — It's a fantastic car to drive. With all the usual Subaru features. I've made a few modifications to it and it flies and is also a dream to drive. It's the best car I've ever owned and I have no plans of getting rid of it.

Pros: Everything

Cons: Nothing much
